Abstract

abstract:

This essay examines recent attempts to defend holenmerism, or the 'whole in every part' doctrine, as the preferred view of God's relationship to the material world in the work of Descartes. By focusing on the interrelationship between space, matter, and immaterial entities in Cartesian philosophy, I will demonstrate that the textual evidence not only fails to provide support for the holenmerist revival, but that holenmerism also runs counter to many of Descartes's concepts regarding space and bodily extension.
